All too often, we quickly forget what a valuable gift our lives are. We are often times so preoccupied with fighting the – often irrelevant – problems of everyday life that we entirely forget to appreciate the beauty that is already present in our lives. Even more so, the pursuit of ever more hinders us in experiencing gratitude for all the amazing and joyful aspects of our lives.
Michelle Obama, wife of former United States President, Barack Obama, an American lawyer and writer, a former First Lady of the United States of America, a mom, an author and a style icon. In the eight amazing years that she served as the First Lady of the United States of America, she managed to become an inspiration for women all across the globe.

It’s easy to forget what an amazing gift life really is. Our lives are nothing but a cosmic blink. Even our seemingly all-encompassing world is just tiny blue dot circling an average sized star spiraling around a galaxy of 200-400 billion stars, which itself is just one galaxy among billions more. Yet for one brief moment, we get to experience the wonders of existence, of consciousness.


Now a quote like this must be put on the list of the most inspirational quotes on life. Why? Because in the end, there’s no secret to success. You have to have the focus, discipline, and self-control. When you say, it takes luck to succeed, you’re giving your power away.

“Pain is a pesky part of being human, I've learned it feels like a stab wound to the heart, something I wish we could all do without, in our lives here. Pain is a sudden hurt that can't be escaped. But then I have also learned that because of pain, I can feel the beauty, tenderness, and freedom of healing. Pain feels like a fast stab wound to the heart. But then healing feels like the wind against your face when you are spreading your wings and flying through the air! We may not have wings growing out of our backs, but healing is the closest thing that will give us that wind against our faces.”
